Renew Australia founder Marcus Westbury recently gave this talk at Newcastle’s inaugural TEDxNewy. In it he explains how Renew Newcastle evolved from a failed attempt to start a bar.
I just wanted to say what a great story this is – congratulations. It’s so fantastic to see what passion can deliver. Just read this in Seth Godin’s blog a day or so ago “Just about every great, brave or beautiful thing in our culture was created by someone who didn’t do it for money.” What you’ve done demonstrates that in spades.
